Aston Villa boss Remi Garde frustrated by lack of transfer window activity

first_imgAston Villa manager Remi Garde has indicated he may reassess his position in the summer after failing to land any of his transfer targets. The Frenchman has missed out on all of the players he wanted to aid Villa’s survival bid in the Barclays Premier League. Garde wanted Seydou Doumbia, who instead joined Newcastle on loan from Roma, while Wahbi Khazri signed for Sunderland, and a deal for Hajduk Split goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic collapsed after a work permit appeal was rejected. Press Association Sport understands Garde has been left disappointed with Villa’s barren transfer window. He has also hinted Villa’s transfer and financial plans may have changed since he became manager in November, with the club now 10 points from safety. “Maybe it was not as clear when I signed, but it’s something that I don’t want to discuss too much,” Garde said. “I understand that you cannot carry on doing the same things when you have not been as successful as you have wanted. “I cannot say the club hasn’t done everything they could. It wouldn’t be fair. “I’m not happy about this situation. I am not stupid and saying we need nobody. ” Some people have to be brave enough to say what have we done wrong in the past and what we should be doing now to stop that and to be better, maybe not in the next months but the next season or in two or three years.” Earlier on Monday, Garde had admitted any late deals would not have been his first choice having failed to land the likes of Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy, who joined Bordeaux late on deadline day. He also personally spoke to Doumbia to try to convince him to join Villa, who are bottom of the Premier League and visit West Ham on Tuesday. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

How to renovate your home without overhauling your budget

first_imgFor many, it is also the only affordable option if they find they have outgrown their home and need more space for the family. In the same survey, one quarter estimated that they had spent between €1,000 and €3,000 upgrading their home. 10% spent between €3,000 and €5,000.Many households planning on renovating their home understandably would not have this spare cash to hand. It can be tempting for them to fund the planned renovations through the credit card. However, with the high levels of interest charged, even if you clear the minimum balance, this can end up being a very pricey decision. For the cost-conscious home improver – a credit union loan is the best option, and are often approved very quickly. Indeed, the ILCU survey found that of those needing to borrow to fund their renovations, six in ten said they would use their local credit union. Other benefits to the home improvement loan include the willingness of the credit union to work with each individual borrower to structure repayments in a way that will suit their individual circumstances. There are no hidden fees or administration charges. Borrowers are also free to repay the loan early, should they wish, without any penalties.

The Blogosphere in Your Pocket: Regator Comes to the iPhone

first_imgRegator, the popular blog directory and feed reader, just launched its iPhone application (iTunes link). The app, which is available for free, allows users to browse stories from over 500 topics, ranging from travel blogs to pop culture and sports blogs – with a bit of beekeeping and local news from around the world thrown in for good measure. Every one of these topics is curated by Regator’s staff, which ensures that only high-quality blog feeds make it into the app. Every topic also comes with its own memetracker-like ‘popular’ view and a list of currently trending terms within each category.One interesting aspect of the app is that you always have to go to the original source blog to read the full text of each post, no matter whether the blog publishes a full-text feed or not. As the Regator team told us when we first wrote about the company last year, the idea here is to give back to the bloggers featured on the site. One nice aspect of the app is that Regator also displays related stories and images, as well as popular blogs about a specific topic whenever you are looking at a story’s summary page.Besides organizing stories based on popularity, Regator also offers a more traditional view, where stories are displayed in reverse chronological order. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… SharingOnce you bring up a news story, you can also easily share it with your Twitter and Facebook friends right from within the app. While you have to hand over your Twitter credentials, the app has implemented Facebook Connect for sharing stories with your Facebook friends.Something for EveryoneBecause the app covers such a wide range of topics, it really offers something for everyone. You can use it to keep up to date on recent tech events and to see what’s hot within the beekeeping community (this story about urban beekeepers is getting quite a lot of attention right now, for example). Because it is curated by Regator’s editors and doesn’t allow you to add your own feeds, Regator won’t replace your current feed reader. However, if you just want to get a quick overview of what’s hot in a certain community, Regator does a fine job of giving you access to a nice collection of quality blog posts. frederic lardinois Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#news#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

London Olympics organizers apologize to North Korea after flag blunder

first_imgThe organisers of 2012 London Olympic Games have issued a statement of apology after mistakenly using the national flag of South Korea for the North Korean team before an Olympics group match of women’s football. “Ahead of the women’s football match at Hampden Park on Wednesday, the Republic of Korea flag was shown on a big-screen video package instead of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea flag,” said the statement issued by the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games(LOCOG).”Clearly, that is a mistake.
